Cybersecurity Services Plan for Foundant Technologies
High Point Networks has helped numerous companies identify what is needed to mitigate risk, one of which is Foundant Technologies.
For more than a decade, Foundant Technologies has specialized exclusively in making philanthropy easier and more impactful through intuitive technology solutions. All their cloud-based solutions focus on streamlining processes for the Grantmaker, Grantseeker, Scholarship Provider, and Community Foundation.
As their business grows, so do their compliance requirements. Director of Information Systems, Cory Brester, knows that with increased compliance comes an even more urgent need for increased cybersecurity services within their organization. That’s why he turned to the team at High Point Networks.
“We partnered with High Point Networks to help us build a long-term Security Plan and identify any risks within our organization,” said Brester.
By conducting this exercise for his organization, Brester was able to prioritize security needs and focus on a smaller number of actionable items with a high payoff. The goal is to review six priorities that the CIS Council on Cybersecurity, National Governors Association, and Governors Homeland Security Advisors Council refer to as foundational cyber hygiene. These six priorities helped strengthen the company’s overall security posture.
“The process was quite simple. We sat down with the team at High Point Networks for a two-day interview. Once the interview was conducted, we reviewed each item and set goals for completion. Simultaneously, we asked them to conduct an external audit and penetration testing on our SaaS product offerings,” said Brester.
High Point Networks Engineers Provide Motivated Cybersecurity Services to Avoid Data Breaches
The High Point Networks security engineers also performed an assessment involving cracking their Active Directory passwords.
Brester continued, “It was an ‘eye opener’ to team members when we shared how many were using already compromised credentials from the LinkedIn data breach or how many had easily hacked passwords.”
Having definition really helped Brester and his team raise visibility internally and implement solutions that educate every employee on their role in reducing security risks.
Over the years, he has built a strong relationship with his Account Manager, Mike Felten.
I cannot be an expert in all areas of IT and still complete tasks needed for the business. This is particularly why we put our trust in the team at High Point Networks. They have worked alongside us supporting our mission and have a similar mission as Foundant. They are all about helping the customer and delivering solutions that can scale with future needs.
